Something in the woodshed

Well there would be, if we had one! I gave the OH 2 days notice to build one but he failed his challenge lol!!This is our 4th winter in this house, the first we were a bit nervous of the real fire so it was an event to have it lit!! The last 2 years we have used offcuts from building work in the house and the offcuts my step dad gets from his wood turning club - this year determined to keep the gas costs down we will be using real fires more - hopefully the woodburner will be sorted if the man ever returns our call....But we have nice stacked 'posh logs' ready for the winter....next year I will have a woodshed...this year we will make do with a tarpaulin covering them!! Can I just add I stacked these logs all by myself, with just a 3yr olds assistance!!Please excuse the lack of paragraphs - blogger hates me today:)

Good for you! Our log man was saying to stock up because the price of wood is likely to increase due to gas being so high. We have oil-fired central heating so we have taken lots of measures to save the oil. Carpets throughout, thick underlay, very thick curtains etc.

We used old pallets to make ours - I adevrtised on freecycle and our local dairy farm contacted us. We don't have a proper roof for it but we store the logs behind the garage where it's quite sheltered. We're also going to make a coal bunker because proper coal is so efficient and burns for hours in an open fire.
